In the event of an electrical storm, suspend play immediately & take appropriate action in accordance with Rule 6-8 of the Rules of Golf whether or not the klaxon is sounded.
Do not play in fog/poor visibility, when you cannot see the clear distance of your intended shot. No play should take place if you cannot see the red/white markers from the yellow tee on the 1st, behind the green on the 10th and from the yellow tee on the 15th. Anyone playing when fog is present does so at their own risk.
Have priority at all times. Players should always alert greens staff nearby or ahead when they are about to make a stroke that might endanger them and wait for staff to move out of range.
